We are also the only hotel in Bogotá with natural light in all the areas, thanks to modern architecture and a unique oval-shaped building design with an atrium and floor-to-ceiling windows.

What’s your personal favorite dining experience at Grand Hyatt Bogotá?
Ushin Japanese & Grill, our 14th floor restaurant, is a unique place not only because of its gastronomic offerings but also because of its panoramic views of Bogotá. From there, one can see the city and the Andes Mountains, a 180-degree view of the capital city. This is the only restaurant in Colombia offering a Robatayaki experience, done at the table with Binchotan coal.
Tell us a few fun facts about the property.
Our toiletries (both in all of our suites as well as in Zaitania Spa) are from Loto del Sur, a local perfumery that produces premium products for personal care using unique local ingredients and aromas found only in Colombia. Also in Zaitania Spa there is a very special facial treatment with Cacay Gold, an oil made from the seeds of an Amazonian tree, which is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and emollient agents.
In each room, there is a fabric with hand-woven copper threads from the Hechizoo workshop by Colombian artist Jorge Lizarazo. The handmade fabrics are Colombian traditions from different regions that are still alive nowadays because it is an art that is taught from generation to generation. Different materials are used, covering a large part of the country (Arhuaco weaving, wicker weaving, Carthage weavings, weaves in Cañaflecha, Wayú fabrics, among others). Artisan fabrics in general have become a fundamental part of the economy in several areas of the country and have served as inspiration for some artists to let their imaginations fly, creating works of international stature.
